Royal Empress: The World’s Fastest Growing Shade Tree

Royal Empress: The World’s Fastest Growing Shade Tree

Merging eco-friendly vibes with the elegance of a garden favorite, the Royal Empress Tree heightens any landscape (literally). Best of all? This coveted cultivar is the fastest growing shade tree in the world! Seriously. It reaches a height as high as 18 feet in the first year alone. Plus, the Royal Empress purifies the soil and cleans the air of pollutants and harmful gases more efficiently than any other tree available. 

What’s more, Royal Empress Trees improve efficiencies in hardwood harvesting and reforestation. In fact, farmers in China are using Royal Empresses for crop cultivation, utilizing a sustainable process known as intercropping. By placing the crops strategically, they create a wind screen to keep the ground moist and increase soil nutrients. Because of their amazing results, the Royal Empress is now called “the little tree that saved China.”

Furthermore, large leaves and rapid growth rate serve to extract pollutants and cleanse the air at an ultra-fast rate. Because of the uniqueness of this tree’s leaves, the Royal Empress cleans the air ten times faster than most other trees.

And by absorbing animal waste and toxins from the ground, Empress Trees clean the surrounding soil as well. This benefits not only the plants but also grazing animals.
